December Advocacy Update

Posted By: Andrew Heidtke ACEC WI News, Advocacy,

Indemnification/Duty to Defend legislation has passed in the Assembly but we're still fighting for passage in the Senate. This is our biggest legislative initiative in years so we need everyone to step up. Contact your senator and tell them to support SB 491. We'll also be advocating for the profession at Legislative Day. We're also encouraging members to step up their political giving ahead of the busy election season in 2024; Check out the folks who have already stepped up.
